      Hello Halima,
      Thanks for your questions. According to the Anti-FGM Board website, this org is indeed a “semi autonomous” government agency in Kenya. The Board works to “uphold the dignity and empowerment of girls and women in Kenya through the coordination of initiatives, awareness creation, and advocacy against FGM”.
      You can find more information on their website here: http://antifgmboard.go.ke/.

      Cheers,
      Matt
